Hi I am a 59 year old female who is an Addisonian... type 2 diabetic with Fibro and everything else related to CFS etc etc etc .
Question if I may I am having trouble with my left side from head /neck spasms right down to my leg ....left side.
It all started with a spasm in my back approx 6 years ago that stayed for 5 weeks .. excruciating . Then after a little while of that coming and going . I had incredible cramp in my left calf . I thought I would try to walk it off. I stepped out of my front door and my calf went off with an almighty crack. So loud that my hubby heared it from inside the house. I had an ambo ride to hospital and was told I had torn the muscle severely. Well onwards... the muscle cramps / spasms were worsening and very debilitating . Still are to this day.
I got diagnosed also( during an Adrenal crisis) after Being Tested over s long time bloods daycurve for my Cortisol levels . Diagnosed ... I have Secondary Adrenal insufficiency... AddisonscDisease ..I take Cortisol have done now for 4 years.
Many crisis and hospitalisations. I have learned how to control my symptoms of Cortisol highs and lows ..
The spasms are however worsening, so my Question is I guess .. what? if anybody has any ideas on this .. my left side so painfully stiff sore now also Arthritic, I have to use a an electric wheelchair instead of my gawjus motorbike.
Ate these spasms anything that can be to do with anything anyone could elaborate on .. ie Addison related , Fibromyalgia sometimes my body is too fatigued to even leave my bed. I am at my wit's end as noone has any answeres for me .
Anyone have any ideas of tests I could ask for . I've seen neurologist who said that I have too much.pain in capsule shoulder that she couldn't tell anything for certain.
I also have urgent bowel/ bladder incontinence.
Cheers guys am sorry about tge book ive just written . But if you can make sense of my ramblings please feedback would be appreciated .
